 Our Description

This book can only be sold in the US and Canada.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta lived a heroic life of charity dedicated to spreading God's love to those poor and most in need. From her earliest days in her native Albania to the day she died in her adopted city of Calcutta, Mother Teresa saw Jesus in the eyes of those who were abandoned, unwanted, and dying.

Regardless of a person's race or religion, Saint Teresa of Calcutta reached out with unconditional love to everyone God placed in her path. This lavishly illustrated book for children 9 years and up tells the inspiring story of her life and how this one small,simple woman, with deep faith and love, made a huge impact on the world for good.

Mother Teresa will be canonized a saint by Pope Francis on September 4, 2016.

With Mother Teresa as our model and intercessor, we can reshape the world in which we live by loving our families, friends, and neighbors in the way Jesus has asked. As Mother Teresa said, "Holiness grows so fast where there is kindness."
